Giant Robot is proud to present You Only Excist [sic] Because of Us, a group show featuring the work of Ryohei Tanaka, Ako Castuera, Sean Boyles, Joe To, and Rob Sato.
Ryohei Tanaka was my old roommate. Rob and Ako used to live in the house I lived with him before I moved in, but I knew them from school. They were kind of like the cooler older illustration kids at CCAC. Ryohei moved back to Tokyo around 2003, cause his student visa ran out. Rob and Ako moved to LA around 2002 and have been there since. Joe To, who is an awesome drawer lives in the City (last I heard), and I don't know what ever happened to Sean Boyles.
Rob won the Xeric Grant for Burying Sandwiches. Marci liked it so much that she bought extras to give to friends.
Ryohei has a book out through Rowan Morrison. It's called, "Killer Cuts and Killing Shapes".
And we went to go see Ako's show last winter at Rowan Morrison. Here's some photos of what she did.
